ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm told I do look like my pictures but I don't look 46, my real age.

Above all else, I’m an ambitious author, a devoted mother and a passionate world traveler. A native but atypical Texan, I’ve lived in six countries and eight regions of the U.S., and traveled 37 countries so far -- and don't believe the Lone Star State is the center of the universe. Been in the Bay area for five years and love it!

I’ve had some fun so far: Traveled 10,000 miles around Australia alone, co-founded and sold an early internet company, performed in an award-winning bellydance troupe, was instrumental in launching an industry, published my first novel last year, danced in Carnaval in Rio, wrote a nationally syndicated column, and played the Oracle of Delphi in a show on Mt. Parnassus, Greece. There is still so much more to experience and create.

I try to make a meaningful impact in the world through my artistic expression, work, relationships and the choices I make. I’m independent, affectionate, compassionate and feminine. I love my life, my work, my friends. I might be one of the most curious people you'll ever meet. I enjoy exploring and being in nature and I’m always learning something new. I care deeply about social justice and the environment. I'm a little opinionated but respectful of others' views. I am upbeat and even-keeled emotionally.

I'm not looking for a standard guy. I’d like to spend time with a gentleman who isn't intimidated by a self-actualized woman: He is my equal, is intellectually stimulating and curious and trying to make a positive difference in the world. High character is a given: Honest, considerate, mature and respectful. That plus depth, creativity, a joyful spirit, wit, confidence and a capacity to be in awe of life will get my attention. You manage to be refined and worldly yet unpretentious and wholesome. You approach life with courage, however imperfectly, and are able to acknowledge your own weaknesses. I love a masculine man who, when the time is right, isn’t afraid to let his guard down with me. I have a strong affinity for Renaissance Men, though they're sadly in short supply. This may seem archaic, but exceptional manners are a big turn-on to me.

Meeting you could be like this: We see each other’s profiles and think “Wow.” On our first date, there is chemistry that makes us a little nervous. We say and do some awkward things, forcing us to acknowledge the undeniable attraction. Laughing at ourselves, we turn the conversation into champagne. To our delight, we share a similar worldview and some common interests but could also open up some intriguing new worlds to one another. We part with butterflies in our stomachs. We can’t wait to see each other again. The next time, fun ensues – lots of it. We really want to touch each other. Soon, mutual respect and admiration develop. We're both at points in our lives where we know ourselves well. We’re both being open and honest about who we are and what we want. We realize there is nothing we want to change about the other. We approach each other with greater presence and vulnerability, connect with passion and tenderness. It feels like home and heaven all at once…

Since many men on Match seem to only look at pictures and therefore don't have any idea if we could possibly be a match before contacting me, I must resort to asking you to please not wink (I've set it so I don't get them anyway) and please do put the title of one of your favorite books in the subject line if you want me to read your email. That way I'll know you read this far. And if you've misrepresented yourself in your profile, please don't waste our time. Thank you!

Favorite things:

Last read:

I often read three or four books concurrently, depending on what mood I'm in. I'm a very curious person and there is really no subject or type of book that wouldn't interest me if there is a compelling story within.
